“Poldi, our little owl is 15 years old. I got him when he was five months old. He didn’t want to come out his egg, and he was very small, the smallest. His six sisters were all hatched, and as he was the last to be born, days after the others, he was very small. I also have a Harris’s hawk named Phönix, a Weissgesichtseule named Gandalf, and a snow owl named Uschi,” Tanja stated in an interview.
“I think my animals like to be photographed. Why? Because I am always outside with my camera and with my animals. So we get to walk together, have fun, go on adventures, have little breaks . . . We take some pictures and after the animals can play again as we keep going. I know my animals very well and I can see their state of mind. If I go out with just one of my animals, the other get antsy and want to be with us. We have lot of fun together.”
“I’ve always loved animals, since I was a baby, unlike the rest of my family. When I was little, I found every sort of pet and then hid it for my parents. I love the beauty, power, loyalty, courage, and friendship of animals. Many people could learn from them.”
